Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik
I received my Diplom from the University of Bonn supervised by Thomas Püttmann. Afterwards I wrote my Ph. D. thesis at Ruhr-Universität Bochum under the guidance of Uwe Abresch. After 18 months as a postdoc at Bochum I spent a year at the University of Pennsylvania, funded by a DFG grant, where I worked with Wolfgang Ziller. Currently I am a postdoc at the Max-Planck-Institut in Bonn where I am a member of Werner Ballmann's group.
